Are you contemplating a divorce? Has your spouse started divorce proceedings? Family and friends may be eager to give you advice. While this help is often well-meaning, it can also be misguided or uninformed. At The Dickerson Law Group, we encourage people to seek help from an experienced attorney who will give you the proper advice and guidance.
For help with a contested divorce, call The Dickerson Law Group at 702-487-7643 or toll free at 888-701-7132 to schedule your consultation. Someone will be in touch with you promptly. We arrange consultations during regular business hours to accommodate your schedule.
How long does a divorce take?
In a contested divorce, the parties are unable to agree about either one issue or all issues. Uncontested divorces, on the other hand, are for couples who can work cooperatively to resolve issues. It may take anywhere from six months to one year before your divorce is slated for trial. Whenever possible, mediation should be considered as an alternative to litigation — it is normally much more cost-effective and quicker. Our firm takes the time to give you the knowledge necessary to make an informed decision about your options to move forward.
What issues are involved in a divorce?
The Dickerson Law Group provides comprehensive representation to people throughout Southern Nevada who are involved in divorce proceedings. Our attorneys seek reasonable outcomes for all the following divorce matters:
